“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden

This is still one of the best things ever said.

Inspiration from the other side.

You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.

You’re Getting Closer and The Power of Acceptance. Get them for an uplifting price on Amazon.

  1. Kate,

    Do you think the source of this desperation is, ultimately, settling? I think that is true to a degree. But I’ve always read this as meaning that we are all (mostly) living in a desperate state, and the only difference between us is that some people are resigned to it and some are not. What do you think? Any way out of this state of living?
